I’m using ASUS P5N-E S motherboard. I have used the EZ-Flash 2 utility to update my BIOS from a floppy disk. It went fine. The BIOS was updated and the computer restarted.
After it restarted however, I got a message saying that the computer couldn't start and I would need to restore the default settings. I went to setup and restored the default settings and now whenever I try to start my computer, I get the following error: "DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER".
Please can someone tell me how I can stop this from happening and get my computer to start up normally?
Your mobo has only one IDE slot, so I'm assuming you're using a SATA interface HDD. Check your BIOS, like Kurun suggested. Look for anything regarding the SATA boot order (not to be confused with typical boot sequence: Floppy, HDD, CD/DVD). For example: You may have SATA optical drives connected, as well as a SATA HDD, and you may have the SATA optical first in the boot priority.
Thanks for the suggestions. I tried checking my BIOS and everything looked fine, so I tried restarting with just my C drive and it worked. I then attached each hard drive one at a time, restarting after each and now everything's OK.
